synths carve out a deep rooted groove that works its way into your brain
Monog Records welcome’s back Croatian DJ and producer Kruno Kereta with the fantastic Ball & Chain EP. His last outing, Disquiet proved popular among the minimalists and we have no doubt that this new cut will not disappoint.
The Original Mix intros with a classic kick that packs a punchy as gritty synths lurk in the background. The synths carve out a deep rooted groove that works its way into your brain. Subtle hats and an ever evolving percussion arrangement build up a steady flowing rhythm as a raw bass creeps through. The track takes on a very hypnotic flow that will keep those feet dancing no doubt.
Portuguese DJ and producer Luis Bravo also returns with another of his sublime remixes. This time around we have his Chained Remix and yet again he delivers the goods. A pioneer on the Portuguese Techno front, Luis brings his own unique style that gains great support from many quarters. The remix here sets off with a subtle intro as an etching synth effect lulls the brain. A nice and chunky kick comes through alongside a crispy hat and the rhythm starts to build smoothly. The synths gather pace and take on many guises while a soft, warm bass meanders through the sound. A real solid grooving deep track that is a definite must have.
Rounding up this superb EP we get drawn deeper into the groove with Hassle. A sublime intro filled with a punchy kick and a wonderful, spacious synth that pans from left to right and gives off a futuristic vibe. Classic styled percussions keep the rhythm in check and add to the tech flavour of the sound. The synths continue to layer up creating a kaleidoscope of colourful sounds alongside a cool vocal one shot. Such an epic ride that will be a welcome addition in many sets for sure.
“Ball & Chain Original is lovely! support & will play this!”
“Original mixes for me thanks!”
“Luís Bravo Remix is my fav. but “Hassle” is a bomb. Fantastic release. Thanks”

Monogamy is the state of having only one sexual partner at any one time. The word monogamy comes from the Greek word monos, which means one or alone, and the Greek word gamos, which means marriage or union. In many cases, the word “monogamy” is used to specifically refer to marital monogamy. Now let’s think about music.
